“It’s always an exciting milestone when residents begin moving in and start transforming a building into active environment,” notes Jaqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for The Mint.   “This is doubly true at The Mint.  The arrival of our initial renters fortifies the already energetic atmosphere in downtown Rahway which is bubbling with lifestyle options for residents to enjoy.”

“The building is a short walk from Main Street, an eclectic business corridor that offers access to hip and authentic bars, eateries, shops and everyday conveniences,” adds Nils Berten, VP USA of The Slokker Group.  “It’s a walkable urban neighborhood that’s easily commutable to New York City in just 45 minutes by train, as well as Edison, New Brunswick and the Jersey Shore.”
